Abstract

© QUADERNS-E DE L'ICA. This article deals with procreative processes from an anthropological perspective and presents an analytical proposal that aims to delve into the basic structures underlying human procreation from a cultural perspective. The proposal has been developed within the R&D project Kinships: Ways of parenthood and disciplinary articulations and refers to the procreative period. It thus allows the analysis of notions concerning personhood and the attributions of meaning in different moments of the process (conception, pregnancy and birth). It also examines parental bonds and newborn care, which are part of kinship and health. As an example, the article exposes the procreative model held by women who opt for a "respectful birth" in Barcelona.
